In this paper a high-order discontinuous Galerkin method is used to solve steady-state isothermal line contact elastohydrodynamic lubrication problems. This method is found to be stable across a wide range of loads and is shown to permit accurate solutions using just a small number of degrees of freedom provided suitable grids are used.

A comparison is made between results obtained using this proposed method and those from a very large finite difference calculation in order to demonstrate excellent accuracy for a typical highly loaded test problem.
